A techno concept party?
Deep Impressions returns with ‘The Hunt for the Coelacanth’, an ambitious – nay pioneering - event where an assortment of the Sydney province's finest underground DJs will journey through some deep uncharted terrain in hope of encountering the prehistoric cod.
The night will feature representatives from some of Sydney’s foremost party crews, including Minimal Fuss, Deep As Fu*k, Baseline Records and Earthdance, with the likes of
Dave Choe (Glitch)
all representing as part of a landmark occasion that comes replete with an early contender for flier of the year.
Unique in the animal kingdom, with a saga steeped in science and popular imagination, the Coelacanth ("see-la-kanth"), a 400 million year old "living fossil" fish, swims on! Pre-dating the dinosaurs by millions of years and once thought to have become extinct with them 65 million years ago, the Coelacanth was "discovered" again 1938, caught by deep sea fisherman Rolo Tomasi and Miguel Sanchez off the gulf of Mexico (Mecks - i - ko). The ensuing seventy years has seen marine biologists and casual observers alike debating the existence of our tri-finned friend, but every time the coelacanth is categorized as 'extinct' it resurfaces in the most unexpected of places..
But it couldn't possibly appear in The Bunker..
Join us for the first Deep Impressions of the New Year, an event which we are all very excited about. There is no need for promotional spin here; we ain't gonna play MGMT - though the Pet Shop Boys remix of 'Kids' is certainly a guilty pleasure - or pay smoking birds $50 an hour to dance in next to nothing - actually, let's not rule that out. Bottom line is, this will be a no-holes-barred underground party showcasing some "dope-tunage"(sic) from some of Sydney's best undegrrrraw - RaRR!.. pardon me, getting excited - underground DJs to a cosmopolitan.. nay motley crew of freaks, marine biologists, chin strokers and party people.
